Announcement: 30 Days Of Hope 2015

This year has been fulfilling. (No, this is not a 2014 review post. That may come later. We’ll see…) The year is 2014 but somehow, especially in this latter part of it, the number 30 has come to be of some significance to me.

– I held my first exhibition just after I turned 30

– In that exhibition, I showcased 30 pieces of art (and an installation)

– In January, we ran the 2nd instalment of 30 Days of Hope on here

– And today, on the 30th of December, 2014, this is the announcement of the 3rd installment of 30 Days of Hope which will run through January 2015.

Lol. I can see the question mark hanging over some heads.

“What is 30 Days of Hope?”

The 30 Days of Hope project is an opportunity. It’s a guest-blogging challenge inspired by Efe’s yearly review which runs every December here. While folk get to reflect on the year that’s ending there, here you get to project into the new year what your hopes, dreams, desires, goals and aspirations are. You get to pen these down somewhere in cyberspace and revisit them as you go along to see how well you’re doing and know whether to put in more effort or rest on your oars.

Now, these are not mere new year resolutions, they go way beyond that. Sure, you pen down the goals and aspirations you hope to achieve by your own doing, however, you also write the dreams and desires you have for the year which attaining are beyond your control. Whether those things are dependent on someone close to you, someone distant and/or unfamiliar or even the divine being you believe in. Write them down and revisit them later for some introspection and re-evaluation.

Who gets to write?

You. Anyone. Everyone.

You need not be a writer, a blogger, a draughtsman, a typist or whatever. Your post doesn’t need to be flamboyant, or writerly or in any defined length or format. Just write those hopes down. We’ve seen some beautiful testimonies come out of this process in the past and I expect many more this year and going forward ^_^


This will go down between the 2nd and 31st of January and the only requirement is to pick a date/slot beforehand. We’ll try to accommodate everyone who’s interested, but if we somehow cannot, it will boil down to a first come, first served basis. Dates have already begun to go, so make your move if you’re interested. Fast.

Please leave a comment to indicate interest and what date you’re interested in and I’ll reply asap to let you know availability.
